The ILRS has just launched a new campaign to fight against religious and political extremism in our societies.
The Hand to Hand project puts forth five common principles and five common actions that believers of all faiths can unite round to build understanding and tolerance in the community, as well as to advance a progressive-minded perspective within each faith group. The way to deal with the religious right is not with the secular left, but with the religious left inside of our secular parties, said ILRS Secretary General Andrew Hammer. The religious left is the only force that can effectively debate and challenge the arguments used by the religious right, because we know exactly where and how the religious right has gone wrong.
More information on this campaign will be made available as it develops.
